Andre is a visual storyteller. His major influences are his Jamaican family, black culture and technology background. Andre grew up between Morristown, NJ and St. Ann, Jamaica. In Jamaica he developed the ability to use what he had available to make things real. Being a black man in the United States made him acutely aware of racial issues that occur throughout the world. His degree in computer science led to his ability to see the world in pixels and deconstruct to foundational levels. Andre enjoyed a career in advertising for over a decade where he honed the art of appropriation to deliver strong messages.
Since Andre began experimenting with oil paint in 2009, his work has been exhibited in and around New York City. As a result of the incredible press that his work receives he has become a unique emerging, young artist. He is most commonly known for his pushpin artwork. His street art can be found at various locations in Harlem, NY and the island of Jamaica. He has commissioned public and private work as well as sold work to New York collectors.
Andre has recently come full circle from his upbringing in Jamaica. He rapidly built a studio in his family’s hometown of Chalky Hill where he now works predominantly. He currently lives between New York and Jamaica. He also periodically works with the local all age school to foster youth interest in technology and the arts.
